Iranian First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri conferred with Cuban President Raoul Castro in Bolivia on Sunday, IRNA reported.

During the meeting on the sidelines of the Group-77 plus China Summit in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz, the two sides underlined the need for the further expansion of relations.

Iran has in recent years expanded friendly ties with Latin America, specially in economic, trade and industrial fields.

Iran's strong and rapidly growing ties with Latin America, specially with Venezuela, have raised eyebrows in the US and its western allies since Tehran and Latin nations have forged an alliance against the imperialist and colonialist powers and are striving hard to reinvigorate their relations with the other independent countries which pursue a line of policy independent from the US.
